After what is being termed the proposal of the year, Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain are #trending. Less than a week ago, at the Lux Style Awards, Yasir popped the question and Iqra said “YES!”
Ever since then, the country has been divided into a social media debate over the morality of a public proposal with barely any consensus reached. However, for those excited about the jodi, there is even more exciting news: yes, they’re going to star together in a drama serial.
For ARY Digital’s ‘Jhooti’, we initially reported that Iqra Aziz and Ahmad Ali Butt will be playing husband and wife. The drama ‘Jhooti’, as the name suggests, will be around Iqra’s character who is a compulsive liar, and the impact her lies will have on her and the people around her.
But as the title of this article suggests, there is another act entering the fold. Yasir Hussain will, too, be gracing the screen in ‘Jhooti’. We have found out that Yasir will have a more significant role as compared to Ahmad Ali Butt’s. Ahmad, who is busy with ‘Parey Hut Love’ promotions for his role opposite Zara Noor Abbas, will be seen in initial episodes of ‘Jhooti’ and can be considered as a supporting role.
The real deal, however, are going to be Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain. While the couple have a relationship off-screen, it will be interesting to see them on television. The two haven’t acted opposite each other in the past.
After what’s being said about her character, we’re interested to see how well she plays the part. Let’s see what drama the ‘Suno Chanda’ star brings to the table. It will also be interesting to see what role Yasir has to play in the drama. Will it be that Iqra lies to Ahmad about her love, Yasir, and goes behind Ahmad’s back? Only to be sent home packing? We can only guess for now.
‘Jhooti’ has been written by Syed Wasi Shah who wrote ‘Bhool’ and is under direction of Ramish Rizvi who also directed ‘Barfi Laddu’. We’ve been told that shooting just started so audiences can expect it sometime end of this year or beginning next year.
